It all began with the city turning off our water because of the recent rain.
To Do List for Today
LaundryNo water seriously defeats laundry day. DishwashingSee “Laundry” Making tortillas for the weekFlour inevitably leads to the need to wash up the counter. Cooking beansWe ran out of water before we could get the beans going. Mowing the lawn No water for the post-mowing shower.
So, what does that leave Sweetieheart and me to do? Geocache.
We weren’t really prepared. We hadn’t had breakfast so we stopped off at Grandy’s to pick up something. We forgot sunscreen but the powerwalk for the Space Race was supposed to be shaded. (Each cache refers to some space achievement – learn while you cache!)
As it turns out, the walking trail will be shaded – in a few years. We found six geocaches, walked 2 miles up and down some nice hills with beautiful views, and collected soft stickers all over our pants, socks, and shoelaces. The majority of the 2-mile geocaching walk was spent on sidewalks although we had to bushwack to find three caches.
It also turned out to be 95 degrees albeit with a wonderful breeze. We had to call it quits when Sweetieheart began to sunburn (he’s very fair-skinned). It was a fun way to spend a waterless afternoon.
